Bottle at home. Charred wood, cinnamon, bitter licorice root. Baked apple if you use your imagination. Ashy, bitter finish with pumpkin pie spices. Flavors are nicely layered and really pop once it reaches room temp.

12 ounce bottle thanks to the infamous Dave W. Thanks! Pours a clear dark brown with a large foamy brown head. Good head retention. Aroma of chocolate, coffee, roasted malt, mild anise. The taste is chocolate, nuts, roasted malt, caramel, hints of anise. Medium bodied, decent balance, good beer, though the apples and cinnamon don’t make a dent here.

Flavor has plenty of sticky malt, orange peel, a bit of black pepper, toasted bread, brown sugar, caramel, a bit of caramelized apple, some black currant too. Full bodied with just a hint of alcohol. Very nice beer.
